The intention of the Hungarian organizers that time was to create such a prestigious competition such as the Tour de France was. Well, this aim was not too far from the reality.
The race was held until the World War II in every year, except two years. During the World War, the event was held twice on a shortened distance, however, following the political changes in the country, it was staged only occasionally. Moreover, later came a long intermission, when the competition was not held, and professional cycling was not supported, during the communism in Hungary. The development stopped during those years. However, true and dedicated fans, riders helped the race to reborn time by time.
A few years ago, Tour de Hongrie set new, bigger goal: to reach the world elite, in 2016 the event continued its road, with the support of the government.
